    A full three and a half feet of bacon will be used to wrap the pizza.

    And there will be even more bacon sprinkled on top!

    Here's what else we know, as reported by USA Today:

    ● The bacon-wrapped crust will only be available for a limited time, starting next Monday, Feb. 23.

    ● It's going to cost $12, which is quite a jump from the $5 hot-and-ready pizzas that made the chain famous.

    ● A single slice of bacon-wrapped pizza will contain 23 grams of fat and 450 calories. For comparison, a slice of regular deep-dish pepperoni has 18 grams of fat and 390 calories.

    Although it isn't available for a few more days, people are justifiably freaking out on Twitter about the bacon-wrapped pizza.
